Talking Menopause

Despite it being a natural life process, the menopause, and how menopause at work can affect people, is rarely discussed.

The University is helping to address this by engaging with Talking Menopause, a leading provider of workshops, coaching, webinars and online programmes, helping organisations create and manage menopause-friendly workplaces.

They are delivering three online sessions for all employees. Managers, staff and all genders are welcome to join:

  • 24th October 14:00 – 14:30 Senior Leadership Team / Board Briefing

  • 25th October 13:30 -15:30 Talking Menopause Workshop for Managers and HR Professionals


Bookings can be made via iTrent Employee Self Service (ESS). Instructions on how to book your place using ESS.
